    Hey guys,

    Thought I would let you in on a steal of a deal for wireless chargers for the S6/S6E. While you do get the charger for free from Best Buy when you buy from them, if you don't want to deal with them there is an amazing offer on Amazon.

    Duracell Powermat 24-Hour Power System for iPhone 4/4s - Black (or White) are only 9.99 on Amazon with prime. I can't link it due to being a newer member (I've been commenting on article for years but not the forums, go figure) but it should rather easy to find.

    Thank goodness for the fact that the S6/S6E has both Qi and PMA is amazing and for 9.99 I bought three of them for the different rooms in my house and work.

    Looks like it's 8.99 now. Good find. Here's the link for people who may want to check it out. I'm gonna read a few reviews before deciding.

    Anyone know If the free charging pad from best buy is an off brand?

    I saw an advertisement and it showed that it was a Samsung branded charging pad.

    Not that it matters, just wanted to know.

    OEM is the way to go.

    Does using wireless charging offer the same fast charging as when you plug in the s6?
    If not super fast, approximately how fast? I've never used wireless charging

    Nope it doesn't. I think usually you're looking at a little less than 1 amp.

    I went ahead and grabbed 2 of those. Couldn't pass it up for the price. When it's all said and done I'll have 4 wireless chargers, I better not ever run out of juice lol.

    Most definitely not fast charging. How could it be? It's slower than standard charging.

    Not sure it matters. If it wasn't what it should be, its amazon... Return it!

    Look close...it it comes with a case for an iPhone 4/4S (which we will just toss)....no one owns the 4S anymore so the manufacturer is having a firestorm sale Hence the reason for the price drop.

    What the heck, I'll give it a shot. I'll get the Galaxy S3 version instead since I actually have an S3, which will now be relegated to backup duties. I don't expect this one to work as well or easily as the OEM charger or the CHOE one that is about $30 on Amazon, but for under $10 I could use it in the office or have it in another room in the house.

    Galaxy S3 version for those interested: Amazon.com: Duracell Powermat 24-Hour Power System for Samsung Galaxy S III - Retail Packaging - White: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I received the two I ordered today from Amazon. This is a REALLY nice setup. I'd love to see someone who has a GS6 use the Duracell Power Mat to Charge. Very simple and minimal styling. Love the tone for charging. Anyone else receive the kit that ordered on this close-out deal?

    Will this for sure work with the gs6 without any special case?

    As multiple sources confirm that this is a PMA charger, yes. If no one explicitly confirms it here, give me the 48 hours I hope it won't take more than for my S6 Edge to arrive so that I can do so for you.
